Heritage turkeys - best breeds, best sources?

mbaldauf | Sep 29, 2006 10:45 PM

I'd like to try my hand at a heritage turkey this Thanksgiving and am overwhelmed by the options. This link ( is a good resource but I'd love some personal feedback.

Anyone have any experience ordering from Heritage Foods USA? They can't guarantee the specific breed but have American Bronze, Bourbon Reds, Narragannsetts, and White Hollands... has anyone tried these, and is there a taste difference?

Also, Bay Area hounds, is there anything raised locally that you can recommend?
